Steampunk Icons and Desktop Themes

Those of you interested in steaming up your computer’s display will be pleased by the topic of tonight’s posting.  I’ve got a desktop theme for Window’s 7 and icons that are available for free download.

The Window’s 7 theme is called Echoes in Time and features sixteen different wallpapers from which you can choose. Here’s a small sampling of the various looks you can download:

Unfortunately, the theme is only good for Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate editions, but if you happen to have one of those, you’re in luck!

There are also free icons you can download, and are available  in .ico and .icns formats. These Steampunk System Preferences have been created by burntheashes0 and can be acquired here.

These are really well done! And you can’t ask for much more being that they’re completely free. Download and enjoy!

Steampunk Wallpaper

Today I’d like to share with you all a website which will aid you in decorating that device which brings us all together here on Trial by Steam, the computer.

All computers nowadays come with with some preloaded pedestrian wall papers. There’s really nothing special about them, and certainly none of them appeal to the Steampunk aesthetic.

Allow me, then, to present for your exploration, Steampunk Wallpapers. They specialize in tailoring a Steampunk flair for your computer’s desktop, all while being entirely free. Here’s yesterday’s wallpaper, called High Flyin:

Observe these blokes having a jolly good time on their airship! This wall paper would be great to induce some Steampunk inspired giggles. Heck, I think it would be great to put on my computer at work to see how my co-workers react and to add a little light-heartedness to my office desktop.

I’d really like to know what they are drinking… it must be fantastic. Also, their revolutionary stylization of their facial hair is, well, awe inspiring.

You’ll find wallpapers like this and hundreds of others with a Steampunk spin at Steampunk Wallpapers. Check them out!
